Meet the People

A community is only as good as its residents. Ours are pretty amazing.

“If you’re at a point when maintaining your home becomes a chore, that’s a good time to consider moving here.”

Meet The Residents   Meet The Team

In my prior home, I would have felt way more isolated. Here, any need that we have—from shopping, to medical help, to fixing the air conditioning—is just a phone call away.”

Cathy Self, The Terraces at San Joaquin Gardens resident

What has life been like during these challenging times?
Hear From Our Residents

“When we first visited The Terraces, we were amazed at the beauty of the community and the friendly atmosphere. Now that we live here, our lives are so much better. I take yoga and water aerobics classes and play canasta and dominos with friends. And I still have time to do my volunteer work. Best of all, we know we’ll be cared for if we ever need it. Our kids know it too, and that’s comforting for everybody. We’re very happy to be here.”

Bev Smith

“If you’re at a point when maintaining your home becomes a chore, that’s a good time to consider moving to The Terraces. All the services offered here make it a great lifestyle. It’s nice to know our future won’t be a challenge.”

Charles Wadham

“The ideal time to move is before you need to. I was able to take the time to downsize without too much stress, and didn’t have to burden my family with any of it. Plus, moving sooner allows you to enjoy more of the activities and great people here. I live in the Piazza building and I love to entertain friends – from on and off campus. I also saw the benefit of the on-site health services when I rehabbed at The Village after my knee replacement. The care I received was excellent, and so close to home.”

Rosemary Cotton

“My wife and I keep very busy here. We’re in the band and serve on multiple resident councils. It’s the greatest place on earth to live. The people are friendly, the lifestyle is carefree and the amenities are wonderful. It’s like living in a resort, but it’s our home. We love it!”

Harvey Zimmerman

“Since moving to The Terraces, I’ve joined The Fun Band, started eating healthier and started using the gym. I’m happy that I don’t have to worry about what would happen to me if I had a medical emergency, and that I don’t have to deal with home maintenance. Life is more fun and less stressful here.”

Nick Garcia

“Jan and I have a family heritage in Fresno that’s now six generations strong. So as you can imagine, we have many friends and family members who’ve called The Terraces at San Joaquin Gardens home. We always had faith that someday we’d find our home here too.

Through our experience, it has become immediately apparent that we really have a family here that’s determined to look after our every need. We know we’re right where we need to be.”
